Plans to turn a Cumbrian pub into a dental surgery have been given the green light.

McMenamin’s café bar on Irish Street, Maryport, has been vacant for two years and Allerdale council has now given permission for the premises to be converted into a dental practice.

The bar was forced to close two years ago after financial problems; the owner, Matty Todd bought the premises in 2006 in memory of his brother, who had a lifelong dream to open a bar. Initially, the bar did very well and even won awards; however, when the credit crunch hit, the bar struggled and Mr Todd had no option but to close it down.

The bar, which has been empty since July 2009 will now be turned into a new dental surgery and local people will be encouraged to register with the practice. The opening of the new surgery will improve access to dental services in the area.
